Wife tells of terrible working conditions

Account Manager (Former Employee)
Louisville, KY

Pros- You get a paycheck.
- You can provide for your family until you find a better job.
- You learn all the dirty little tricks of the automotive sales industry so the next time you purchase a vehicle you know what to look out for.

Cons- If you are Hispanic, discrimination and racism runs rampant throughout the entire organization directed solely at Latinos. It's not only tolerated, it is happening at the highest levels within the organization.
- They have a policy that if you do not have good credit and if you must go through their 'buy here, pay here' section known as the "Advantage Plan", they will not sell you a car if you do not speak English. This has been their policy for over 20 years according to management.
- You must sign an Arbitration Agreement

Advice to Senior Management(1) Take better care of your employees no matter what their national origin is. (2) NEVER underestimate the power of social media. (3) Read up on the definition of "hate crimes' and ensure you're not guilty or covering up for someone else who is guilty. (4) Have spouses sign arbitration agreements and non-disparagement / settlement agreements.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Long, tedious, boring, unscrupulous, and unrewarding.
